Letter to LSC re: Family Graduated Fees

We write to express our disquiet at the contents of the private press briefings that have been given by the LSC over the course of last week and prior to the issue of the forthcoming consultation on Family Graduated Fees for the Bar.

On 13th May 2008 we were contacted by a journalist seeking our response to proposals, advanced in a private briefing, to cut fees for publicly funded family barristers by 15%. The journalist also enquired as to our view on your proposal to further reduce those fees thereafter so as to obtain parity with fees paid to solicitor advocates. We of course had to give a response.
